If you don't have access to your admin panel, try manually resetting your plugins (no Dashboard access required). If that resolves the https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-login-receiving-internal-server-error/ issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause. If that does not resolve the issue, try switching to the Twenty Fifteen theme to rule-out a theme-specific issue. If you don't have access to your admin panel, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account's control panel, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the default theme to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue. If that does not resolve the issue, it's possible that a .htaccess rule could be the source of the problem. To check for this, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account's control panel, and rename the .htaccess file.

It’s a catch-all bucket error. It’s basically you responding to your doctor “I hurt” when he asks what’s wrong with you. Except in this case, it’s the web server hosting the page you’re trying to connect to having a breakdown. Normally when you request a webpage the process goes a little something like this: You type the page URL into your browser and hit enter. [go browser go!] Your browser sends a request for that page to the server that hosts it. [I can has page please?] The web server hosting the page locates that page. [sure let me grab that for you.] The web server transmits the HTML file for that page to the browser. [here, have my pages!] The browser displays the page. [good browser!] The 500 error occurs when something goes wrong in Step 3. Instead of the web server responding “sure let me grab that for you” and then locating the page, the web server says something along the lines of “mirfrogansnogalanfragnenstein aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh, kerplunk”. Which tells you absolutely nothing other than something has gone horribly wrong. To make everything more confusing, this can happen for a variety of different reasons.
